New site for Hindu temple in Shah Alam

The Selangor Government has identified a new, more suitable site for the relocation of the 150-year-old Sri Maha Mariamman Hindu temple in Section 19 here, according to a Star report .

A press statement from the state government said that the new site is still in Section 23 but was more strategic and located 100m from the original relocation site and 400m from the residential area.

The state government would discuss the matter with the temple committee and look for an amicable solution acceptable to all parties, the statement said.

It said that the identification of the new site was the result of the efforts of Batu Tiga assemblyman Rodziah Ismail, Shah Alam MP Khalid Samad, Shah Alam Mayor Mazalan Md Noor and PKNS chairman Othman Omar who checked out suitable sites in Section 18, 19, 20 and 23.
